Scribe created a texture [1] based on the .obj file I created earlier using a ase2obj convert I found online.

The UV map does not match the one we use, so I can't test it in-game though.

Does anybody know what would have to be done to use .obj files instead of .ase in Trigger? This would be ideal, as it is a widely supported format, while .ase is rarely supported, especially in open source software. I might try converting the .obj to .ase if I find the time and tools.

Cheers

Scribe expressed their interest in helping with car textures [1] but would like to be able to edit with pre-viewing (rather than having to run Trigger to test the textures).

I googled the format for a few minutes and it seems non-trivial to convert/import the format, even though it is ASCII. Does anybody remember how the meshes were created and/or how it 'differs' from standard .ase? (this was mentioned in a bug report [2]).

hc of OpenGameArt made a dirtier version of the evo skin in GIMP [2] and I recorded an in-game video [3] as well as a version without logos/text [4].

Hello,

I posted a thread on OpenGameArt [1], requesting help in creating license-OK textures for Trigger. User "farrer" created a script to export UV maps from our 3D models and also posted three examples to the thread. Later he created a sample texture for the Ford car [2].


I made a few screenshots of the skin in-game [3].


I won't try to convince you to commit this one just yet but I might try in the future if no alternatives arise. ;)

I will keep you updated as new art will be created. :)

Cheers
